Ca' Brütta 1921. Giovanni Muzio Opera Prima
15 April - 10 July 2016
Castello Sforzesco, Milan Sala del Tesoro - Sala Viscontea
Castello Sforzesco in Milan is hosting an exhibition conceived and produced by Giovanni Tomaso Muzio, director of the Muzio Archives, and Giovanna Calvenzi, on the occasion of the first restoration of the building for conservation purposes.
Now restored to its original appearance, the building tells an eclectic story of intertwining areas of expertise, opening a window onto society and raising questions on the nature of community in an expanding city.
Founder of the “Architectural – Urbanistic Movement of Renewal in Lombardy”, Giovanni Muzio designed more than 50 buildings in Milan over the course of the 20th century, leaving a deep mark on the city and bringing a new vision to its fabric. From the Bramante courtyards of the Catholic University to the Palazzo della Triennale, all of his works reflect the principle to which Muzio remained faithful throughout his life:
“There is no architecture without town-planning.”
The exhibition also features a presentation in the form of a large photographic album, the results of a new project that engaged 29 photographers, including Gianni Berengo Gardin, Giovanni Gastel and Francesco Radino, in investigating and reinterpreting Ca' Muzio through photographic images.
UniFor is a supporter of the project in the role of technical sponsor.

New Opening - UniFor Showroom Paris
On the occasion of its 50th anniversary, UniFor is restoring and renewing the historic showroom of its French branch, designed by Afra and Tobia Scarpa in 1979. The newly renovated spaces has been inaugurated during Paris Design Week, in celebration of both UniFor’s first 50 years - the history of which is illustrated in a prestigious book published by Skira, “UniFor. A Commitment to Architecture” - and its 40 years on the French market at its historic and prestigious Paris location on Rue des Saint-Peres. It was 1978 when the Molteni family founded UniFor France and entrusted Afra and Tobia Scarpa with the task of transforming the former residential apartment at 6 Rue des Saints-Pères into spaces suitable for receiving its clients and presenting the UniFor collection. The showroom was launched the following year. The renovation project, overseen by the architect Simone Agresta, leaves Afra and Tobia Scarpa's original project intact while reinterpreting the spaces in a modern key
